It’s the birthday of English poet Andrew Marvell, born at Winestead-in-Holderness, Yorkshire, England (1621). His best known poem is “To His Coy Mistress” (1650):
Had we but world enough and time,
This coyness, Lady, were no crime…
But at my back I always hear
Time’s winged chariot hurrying near:
And yonder all before us lie
Deserts of vast eternity.
